As family law attorneys, we understand that child custody disputes can be stressful and emotional for everyone involved. Our team of experienced attorneys is dedicated to helping families navigate the legal process and make the best decisions for their children.
In Arkansas, child custody laws recognize two types of custody: legal and physical. Legal custody allows a parent to make decisions about their child's upbringing, such as education, religion, and medical care. Physical custody, on the other hand, determines where the child will live.
Joint custody is a common arrangement where both parents share legal and/or physical custody of the child. If necessary, the court may award sole custody to one parent if it serves the child's best interests. When making this determination, the court takes into account various factors such as the child's relationship with each parent, the stability and safety of each household, and each parent's ability to provide for the child.
In case parents cannot agree on a custody arrangement, a court will make the final decision through a trial. During the trial, both parents will have the opportunity to present evidence and testimony to support their position.
